From the Desk of The Executive Officer



Welcome to the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (Ph.D) Program at The Graduate Center of the City Univeristy of New York. Our program is the only publically funded Nursing Ph.D program in New York City. Our goal is to prepare nurse scientists, leaders and educators who conduct research to improve the health care quality of new York City's culturally diverse, urban population. Our valvues of excellence, diversity, and respect are demonstrated in an uncompromising commitment to academic rigor, accountability, evidence, and assessment; a steadfast insistence on the ability to serve students from all backgrounds; and a dedication to meet the needs of the University's urban setting.

Our graduates have deepened their ability to think analytically and innovatively allowing them to respond to their complex health care needs of the urban populations of NYC and beyond. They are prepared to assume leadership positions in diverse health care settings and academia with a special focus on urban underserved and vulnerable populations. To this end, our program provides a peer mentoring program for students, ongoing faculty-student advisement that is geared toward greater oversight and accountability in student retention, progression and time to degree.

We are pleased to welcome you into our community of scholarship, professional development and a journey of lifelong learning. Your success is our success. Our websit contains all the informations you need to know about the program, faculty, students, and policies. Please be sure to check it often as announcements and news are up-to-date.

Best Wishes and Welcome Aboard!!
